    1. At the end of it all, I thought to myself that there should be more pictures. I felt that somehow the reader or the viewer could understand Audrey a little better through the pictures presented. She was ever elegant, innocent yet alluring and she also seems like the type that changes the entire atmosphere of a room when she enters. I enjoyed looking at the sets especially for the classic film "My fair lady" . It was very elaborate and just mesmerizing to look at.

    2. I really did not like any of the pictures. Didn't find her true spirit reflected in any of them.

    3. Lovely pictures. I always love Taschen's editions, but I would've enjoyed it more if I didn't have to flip to the back every time I wanted to see information about the picture.
